"At home I'm a girl from Germany."

December 1979: Unexpectedly, the 7-year-old Lucia Engombe was taken from the African bush and brought to a children's hostel in the German Democratic Republic (GDR). In socialist Germany, she and 79 other Namibian children were to be turned into the 'new elite' of an independent Namibia.

August 1990: The 18-year-old Lucia is taken with the other so-called GDR children overnight to a home country that is completely foreign to her. Suddenly, standing before her is an unknown woman: her mother.
